BEEF

I seem to always crave beef during pregnancy. Funny thing is that before DS #1, I didn't really like beef much - I was starting to like some beef, but not all. Then I got preg and started loving Wendy's Jr. Bacon Cheeseburgers (I know, such a healthy pregnancy choice!). This time, I'm going for steak and beef pot roast.

(obviously I'm not a vegetarian )

Sun-dried tomatoes and milk (not necessarily together)! And I've been doing a lot of spinach salads as snacks in the afternoon... but I don't know if that's a craving or just an ease-of-making =) At least it's not as bad as my son's pregnancy... all I wanted the first trimester was salt... and third trimest (I'm embarassed to admit) CORNDOGS!

Spinach salad here too! But what I HAVE to have lately is avocadoes. (I nice, cheap craving, right? )

With my other pregnancies, I craved: potatoes(#1), mushrooms (#2) and eggs (#3).

Beef here too.

I don't eat much red meat but when pregnant that's all I want.

This week it's whole wheat bagels with onion and chive cream cheese. Last week it was coconut.

With my first, I craved frozen pizza (ick) secodn it was peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Third it was BLTs. So, I'm expecting sooner or later I'll settle into one thin for the rest of this pregnancy, too :LOL

ugh, I *wish* I would actually crave something, anything! but right now the thought of eating just grosses me out. I have to just push down some food every now and then to keep away the nausea and hunger. I'm hoping that soon I'll start to actually want to eat something!

when i'm pregnant i always eat terribly. i think i survived the first 5 months of my last pregnancy solely on mcdonalds cheeseburgers and tv dinners. it was absolutely the only thing i could keep down, and i figured eating crap and keeping it down was better than throwing up healthy food the minute i ate it, if i could even bring myself to take a bite.

right now i just wish i was craving something, because absolutely everything i can think of is making me gag. i had a brief interest in potato soup, but after peeling a few potatos i decided it didn't sound so good after all. oh well, what can you do?

Fish. I don't usually eat much fish but these days I want fish every night for supper. Wouldn't be such a problem if I was in Canada but for some reason Sweden doesn't have that great of a selection of frozen fish. And fresh fish is bloody well expensive.

mmmmmm potato soup. i think i may have to have that for lunch

Actually all my friends said they would know I was prego when I started to eat normal.
I like turkey with strawberries, Potato pancakes with Ketchup, hot sauce and Syrup, and all kinds of other weird combos.

I haven't figure out what I'm craving yet, I mean, I'm definietly craving something, but it's driving me nuts because I can't figure it out

I actually usually eat healthier when pregnant (except last time I was healthy for 6 days a week, and then wanted taco bell! lol)

Tht's my biggest issue, I'm craving anything! I'm so hungry all the time, I don't have any nausea so that's not the problem, but NOTHING sounds good. I spend all day thinking about what I might be able to choke down, and it still doesn't "hit the spot" I'm so hungry right now but can not think of a single thing that I want to pass through my lips. :

There is no way to happiness, happiness is the way.
